Reports are coming in that some retailers, such as Target are receiving solid cases of the 6″ 40th Anniversary Princess Leia figure, such as the image above provided by forum member dubsack. This also appears to be happening at some Toys”R”us stores.
Now, we’re not opposed to this great figure of our favorite princess being in good supply, but solid cases of anything in this scale at mass retail seems like it could cause problems, unless we’re talking Stormtroopers or Royal Guards (even that would be risky).
Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the forums!
Target stores are running some good deals this week, including $9.89 price on TBS 6″ figures. The kicker though is that the only figures that rang up for this price at my local store were Jyn, Cassian and the Death Trooper. The tags indicate it’s all figures, so if you try and purchase others, they will likely ring up for $19.99 and you will need to explain the situation to the cashier.
Jedha Revolt sets are also $19.99 – which is a steal. And on top of that, you can text STAR10 to save $10 off a $50 Star Wars purchase, and STAR25 to save $25 off a $100 Star Wars purchase (excluding LEGO of course).
The only tough news here is on the new display shippers, they have limited Baze and Chirrut to 1x each in the shipper… which is typical of Hasbro’s poor distribution model. And the 3.75″ stuff… all stuff that was released last Fall… which is absolutely ridiculous. Where’s Raddus??

Just in time for the stock refresh, Target will be offering a 20% off sale on all Star Wars toys (excluding LEGO of course). Sale starts 3/26 and runs through 4/15.
Thanks again to TargetGod for the details.
Update: apparently the sign used for this promo is a bit unclear regarding what is actually for sale. The sign doesn’t say “all”, nor does it say “select”. And to throw one more caveat into the deal is that it is regional and not at all stores.

Target will be featuring an aisle end cap for 40th Anniversary of the Star Wars the week of April 16. The reset should include wave 1 of the 6″ figures on the Vintage style card backs, the 6″ Vader Early Bird/Legacy Pack and more (including that exclusive POP! holographic Qui-Gon Jinn).

Instagram follower akastarwars has just notified us that the 6″ Black Series wave containing Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe has been found at Target in Denver, CO. The hunt begins….
Target stores have started setting their prepack aisle shippers which include the new Jedha Revolt set, Bladebuilders lightsabers, Black Series figures, basic figures and Nerf blasters. Thanks to instagram follower KyloCollector for the heads up.
Looks like the 6″ Black Series AT-ACT Drivers have started making landfall on the West Coast. We received a report that the Costa Mesa store in California received (and sold through) a case today. Again for reference, the DPCI is 087-06-1115
Thanks to @cerbres_child for the heads-up.
Yakface reader, and brother-in-law, AdamBomb sends in a store finds from the Pacific Northwest. Target (North Gate) has stocked with Wave 3 of the Rogue One/Star Wars Rebels assortment of basic 3.75″ figures. Thrawn’s gone, but the rest should still be there as of this post.
For those stockroom hunters, it looks like the Target Exclusive 6″ Imperial AT-ACT Driver will be hitting shelves around the last week of March. We can also exclusively provide the DPCI for this figure as 087-06-1115.
Thanks to TargetGod for the intel.
Hasbro has also revealed two 6″ retailer exclusives coming later this year in the US. Target will be getting the AT-ACT Driver and Entertainment Earth will be offering R5-D4.
UPDATE: GameStop will be offering the R5-D4, not Entertainment Earth
